Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle...enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident...certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Suggested correction: Actually, it could be the same waterline, because all the cars are seen floating out. That way, a huge amount of weight would have been lost, but with the new addition of the water taken on, it would be about the same.

The weight of the water displaced would be equal to the weight of the car while is floating so that would make absolutely no sense at all. The water that would fill the total area that would have been taken by the car would be far greater.

Center of gravity takes precedence. Sliced down the middle, the two halves of the ferry would have instantly toppled away into the water.

Well, not instantly. There's a lot of mass with a lot of inertia there. It would take some time for them to gain momentum.
